MK was the first fashion lover we noticed embracing the full finger ring back in December, and we loved it. Now, we're spotting Rihanna wearing one (and sometimes two) during her ongoing media blitz - most recently at the the awesome BET Awards. While the trend takes cues from calvary armor of the 16th century, the ring variation has typically been reserved for more hardcore Goth culture. We still don't know whether to call them "Gauntlet Rings," "Full Finger Rings," "Armor Rings," "Over the Knuckle Rings," or some variation thereof - but Googling will turn up some pretty diabolical results. And everyone still thinks we mean "Brass Knuckles". Definitely not. Vivienne Westwood has been making her "Armour Ring" for years, but it's a little expensive and we're on the hunt for a more delicate looking variation, like the filigree version Rihanna's sporting at left. Maybe it's a sign, but we're not having much luck. So in the future, if you see us on the street giving someone the finger, at least you'll know why. -- JAZZI McGILBERT
